About Medford
map
Medford Massachusetts was settled in 1695 and became a city in 1892. The economic history was based on the ship building trade in colonial times. Ship building was begun by Thatcher Magoun who used lumber harvested from the Fells and New Hampshire which arrived via the Middlesex Canal.

After the ship building industry reached its decline printed cloth and carpets, linseed oil as well as rum and hats became the major products in Medford as did education with the founding of Tufts University in 1852. Because of its industrial prosperity Medford doubled its population every 20 years from 1870 to 1910.

To this day Medford is a well populated city in a very convenient location filled with many suburban neighborhoods. However it still retains a rich architectural heritage containing many historic sites which include monuments and houses-some of which date back the 17th century.

Biodiversity for a Livable Climate: Restoring Ecosystems to Reverse Global Warming


Schedule: Friday, 6-9 p.m. - Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. - Sunday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Promoting the power of nature to remove excess carbon from the atmosphere where it does untold damage, and restore it to the soils where it supports abundant life and reverses global warming.

We are telling a new story.  Each of our speakers presents a chapter in the remarkable narrative of life on earth in the 21st century.  We humans are a key part of that narrative, and while there are many parts they all come together in a single tale.  We will weave those parts together so that each presentation is part of the whole, a whole that builds a different and more hopeful worldview than we’ve heard in a long time.  We have a lot of work to do and heavy paradigms to shift, but we can and will tell the new story with exciting and hopeful outcomes.

Our Boston conference has a roster of expert speakers followed by an international series of events bringing together climate advocates, farmers, ranchers, scientists, social scientists, policymakers, NGOs, artists, visionaries and the general public – in other words, any and all of us – for a non-technical discussion to consider:

  1. The exceptional potential of the biosphere to address all of our current emissions, as well as to remove the 125 parts per million of excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  2. Effective action on a global scale by applying eco-regenerative approaches to lands and waters worldwide.
  3. The use of biological systems to re-establish healthy water cycles to cool the earth’s surface.

Our primary urgent goal in the face of widespread breakdown in addressing climate change is to further the understanding necessary to embark on the global regeneration process made possible by enabling the forces of biology. Collectively we will present affordable strategies for eco-restoration that local, national and international governments, agencies, communities and individuals may rapidly implement in order to reverse global warming.
